This year we will do things bigger and better than ever before! ^_^
Extra Life began in 2008 as a way of honoring a young lady named Victoria Enmon. Tori’s battle against acute lymphoblastic leukemia inspired the Sarcastic Gamer Community in a way that is difficult to describe. Members sent in video games and bought gifts to keep Tori’s spirits up despite numerous hospitals stays and three bouts with the deadly disease.
Tragically, we lost Tori to cancer in January 2008. Later that year, Extra Life was started, a 24-hour video game marathon to raise money for the hospital that treated and fought beside Tori. In 2008 and 2009 Extra Life raised a combined $302,000. 100 percent of which went directly to help kids like Tori at Texas Children’s Hospital. One of many hopitals part of the Children’s Miracle Network.
While thousands of gamers, more than 100 websites and more than 12,000 donors were happy to support Extra Life, many expressed their desire to raise money to help more kids.
All the money we raise for Extra Life 2015 will go directly to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
This year one of the main hopitals we will be supporting is the Boston Children’s Hospital home to the world’s largest research enterprise in a pediatric hospital where recent advances in sickle cell disease research have been called a “breakthrough” by the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. agency responsible for medical research.
This year we will be adding a bit of a challenge to our cause and attempt to play at least 24 games in 24 hours. Thanks in advance. ^_^
